Introduction Letter from the new Co-Director: Yuni

Hello dear families,

With great pleasure, I write this letter as the newly appointed Co-Director here at Grace Children’s Center. My name is Yunuen Cardenas-Garcia. I was born in a beautiful fishing town in the Mexican Pacific in southern Mexico. I came to the United States at the age of 16 and since then Seattle has become my home, where along with my husband, we are raising our three beautiful children: 14, 11 and 4 years old. Together we enjoy spending time outdoors playing sports, camping, and swimming. When I was in high school, the Lord planted a seed in my heart and called me to serve him working with young kids. In 2018 I started my career as a toddler teacher in a bilingual center. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to have continued working with families and children of different backgrounds, as well as fellow teachers, advocating for children’s rights and positive education. I am currently a student at North Seattle College, where I study Early Childhood Education, on my way to earn my Associate Degree as part of my professional growth. I am honored and overjoyed to be welcomed to this beautiful center, where I can continue to fulfill my calling with the children, teachers, and parents.

Along with all of you, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established here at Grace Children’s Center. I look forward to getting to know all the parents, students and teachers and building solid relationships. During the year, I hope we will work together to provide opportunities that will prepare the children for the world and the challenges ahead. As Co-Director my door will always be open to discuss your concerns, suggestions, or ideas to make the children’s education the best it can be. I would like to thank the Grace Ministry Team for granting me this incredible opportunity to serve our Lord Jesus together and I look forward to meeting you all soon.
